Buffalo Bills News And NFL Notes

The Buffalo Bills have yet to make a comment on the Vince Young workout, and how they will proceed with him. From one of the receivers on hand, David Nelson, said he looked in great shape, and was throwing the ball very nicely. The Bills let him leave town with no deal in hand. Not sure what the Bills are looking for in a back-up, but Vince would be a nice viable option.

In other news the Bills released corner-back Drayton Florence who put up some good numbers while starting for the Bills. Drayton was a 3 year starter for the Bills from 2009-2011 with having 168 tackles and seven interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns. With the Bills drafting Stephon Gilmore there was going to be an odd man out in the secondary for the Bills. This move really did not surprise me. For the most part the Bills have gone young in the secondary with an average age of 24 (Terrance McGee & George Wilson are 31).

Additionally, the Bills were not done making moves for the roster. They signed 10 undrafted free agents. Who knows we might find a diamond in the rough here. Here they are as follows:

  • Aaron Corp – QB – 6’3” 205 – Richmond
  • Chris Douglas – RB – 5’9” 213 – Missouri State
  • Cris Hill – CB – 5’11” 178 – Virginia Tech
  • Delano Howell – SS – 5’11” 210 – Stanford
  • Paul Madsen – OL – 6’5” 312 – Colorado State
  • Shawn Powell – P – 6’4” 248 – Florida State
  • David Snow – OL – 6’4” 305 – Texas
  • Nick Sukay – SS – 6’1” 215 – Penn State
  • Ian Wild – S/LS – 6’0” 208 – Mercyhurst
  • Garrick Williams – ILB – 6’2” 241 – Texas A&M

With the draft now complete, and rosters getting the final touches teams are currently holding rookie camps. Without a doubt the most anticipated workouts were for the Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins who showcased their first round QB picks, Andrew Luck (Indy), and Robert Griffin III (Washington) We got to see snippets of the future of the NFL at the QB position. The Redskins, in particular Coach Shannahan, advised that Robert Griffin III will be the starting QA from day one, which is no surprise. While the Colts did not come out and say the same thing about Andrew Luck it can pretty much be a given he will be starting week 1.

On a final note, it was a sad day in the lives of the Seau family, and the NFL family last week. Learning the news of Junior Seau passing was very sad. The league lost a great player and an ambassador of the league who spoke of high praise of the league that he loved.
